Dr. Graeme Bolger has the following 3 specialties
- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

I chose UAB Hospital for my Renal Carcinoma cancer surgery. I had options in my home state of Louisiana as well as other states. My experience with the hospital was outstanding in every aspect. I joined a clinical trial the was led by Dr. Bolger. I would agree that he has a strong inclination towards research but after all it was a clinical trial! I found him to be very compassionate and truly concerned and interested in my plight. He will give you the facts clearly and objectively as you want to hear them. His staff was just as kind and accommodating as Dr. Bolger. I would travel from Louisiana to Birmingham every six weeks for followup. Not only did Dr. Bolgers office do everything they could to accommodate my travel schedule, but also blood work and scan departments went out of their way to accommodate my schedule. I am able to pen this review in large part due to Dr. Bolger.
